  • Position: deep or partial shade
  • Soil: humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Spring flowering plants with broadly ovate, mid green leaves, that are attractively mottled with a paler shade of green. Long-lasting, lemon-scented flowers, with green sepals and narrow yellow petals, sit immediately above the rosette of foliage, forming slender, upright, flame-like silhouettes before becoming slightly more open.

    These plants are quite hard to grow and will take some time to establish large clumps, so they are better suited to the more experienced gardener.

  • Garden care: Plant rhizomes 5cm deep and 5cm apart in autumn. Once planted they are best left undisturbed so they can build up their numbers. Mulch in the autumn with a generous layer of leaf mould.
  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
